user reviews of the Lord Burghley, Stamford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Pint of Doombar served up by an affable barman. Interior unremarkable but not unpleasant and buzzed with conversation. Had to move outside, however, to escape the smell of greasy food.

The LB clearly needs to up the quality of its cask ales ( 6/10 London Pride) with arrival of Spoonies.

Always a good place to go for a nice pint of Worthington smooth served by very pleasant & friendly staff well recommended.

Indeed, my review was badly worded. Whilst the original pub closed before I was old enough to be a credible drinker, my father often mentions visiting the Rising Sun amongst many other long-closed Stamford drinking establishments when remeniscing about his younger days. My point here was to inform any interested reader that, although the building may seem centuries old, it was in fact demolished and rebuilt from the ground up after a period of closure (although as a listed building the facade at least is identical to that of the previous building on the site). I fully agree with TheGriffin's comments and have myself only visited once, after being something of a regular, since the departure of the landlord in question.

Dear Stamfordian,you obviously need to check your facts (not a pub until 30 years ago) I am a Stamfordian who served formative drinking years on this site in the early sixties.It was then the Rising Sun.Have not used the Lord Burghley for the last ten years,since the best Landlord the L.B ever had was ousted.Please see comment posted 14 March 2008.

Not a pub until 30-odd years ago, when it was flattened and rebuilt stone by stone and received its name as it belonged to the Burghley Estate. Subsequently was extended into the next-door house. Before general all-day opening it was one of a few town pubs open all day on Fridays (market day). Has always been a free house with a number of real ales, but few changes and nothing unusual for the area (except Fuller's ESB). In past times a flagship for well-kept ales, but not for the last few years when it has generally disappointed.

Popped in here on a Saturday lunchtime with the enemy, a friend and our 18 month old daughter. Couldn't fault it. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Veggie breakfast waqs great value at 3.95 a throw, and there was a beer festival going on out the back ( lovely pint of mild ! ).

Been in hear plenty of times in the past, and have always had a great pint. Ideal for browsing the second hand shops and reviewing your purchases over a beer.

Always busy, one of the most popular pubs in town. Excellent beer garden and the place has the facilities to show two sports matches at once.

Toilets are outside and always busy also, expect to queue.

Great place to bump into anyone who went to the local public schools! Mainly the sought of place to go to if you want to sit down and have a chat with mates. Beer selection is always reasonable, but nothing special about the place. Although, I do like the beer garden out the back.
